A piece of post 9/11 New York on display @ Lisan Gallery of Art and Design - Lisan Gallery is privileged enough to have the chance to feature many of Maureen McCarron’s guardian angels. Now these are not your run of the mill friendly, cutesy angels but rather fierce, and at times unsettling protectors that are meant to scare off any bad energy or thoughts. “These are not happy angels,” Maureen states. “They have scary faces, faces that will protect you.”

These images are a direct result of the loss of many friends to AIDS and the atrocities of 9/11 that left a substantial impression on Maureen who lives in Soho, just a half mile away from where the World Trade Center was. It all started when she was in college. She had intended to do her master’s thesis on the Angel as an Archetypal image, but had to leave school before she was able to finish. In 1999 after attending a Native American sunrise drumming ceremony at the plaza between the WTC towers, she saw a howling face in an abstract painting she started that evening.

Maureen could always see the World Trade Center towers from her home, “They took up the whole sky. They filled he sky like a mountain,” she says. Then the impossible happened, she witnessed first hand the day the world changed, September 11, 2001. Not only did she see the shadow of the plane pass over her home, but people falling from the buildings, the horrible flames, horrific chaos, and the implosion and collapse of the towers and imminent destruction of the whole complex.

Weeks after she was still in shock. Like many people involved in this tragedy she suffered from post-traumatic stress and attended therapy retraining. After time she was able to piece together the order of events. However she was still too upset to paint. Instead she started working with handmade paper pulp, which was a departure from the egg tempera that she tends to work with. On the first anniversary of the horror, she picked up the brush again and painted a piece titled, Cassandra. Since then she has branched out and started to make masks as well.

Owner of Lisan Gallery, Elissa A Jones came in contact with Maureen thru a website called Craig’s List and snapped at the chance to feature her work. “At this time we have a great selection of her work. We have examples of her progression thru grieving and resolve,” Jones states.

Lisan gallery (lisangallery.com) has had a small assortment of Maureen McCarron’s work since their grand opening in January but the collection has been expanded in further remembrance of upcoming 5 year anniversary of the tragedy simply know as 9/11.
